I have heard Nickel Alloy has the tendency to gum up. I prefer Iridium for heat resistance.

Is it a myth or something?

      Chongqing Feilong Jiangli latest information. Juniper Research, a market research firm, predicts that by 2030, more than 62 million vehicles will have V2V communication capabilities, more than 1.1 million more than in 2019. V2V solution can achieve low delay communication between vehicles, especially to improve driver safety.
      The new study by Juniper Research, titled Consumer Networked Automobile: Remote Information Technology, Vehicle Application & Networked Automobile Business 2018-2023, shows that the 5G network launched in 2019 will be the key driving factor behind the expansion of V2V communication technology. The study predicts that OEM will prefer to use 5G technology for V2V communications rather than other technologies because 5G technology has lower latency and higher radio frequency range.
      Juniper Research found that the development of 5G technology will promote the commercial deployment and interoperability of 5G technology, and predicted that by 2030, the United States will become the main market for deploying V2V technology, and 60% of new cars sold in the United States will have V2V function. The technology could reduce the annual death toll in the United States by more than 9,300 people, accounting for 25% of motor vehicle deaths.
      In addition, the study also predicts that manufacturers of automotive original equipment will explore new strategies such as on-board content subscription to generate revenue in addition to automotive sales. The study predicts that applications directly integrated into vehicles will generate more than $2.2 billion in revenue by 2030.
      Juniper Research suggests that in addition to using 5G networks, OEMs must also open up their on-board ecosystems to third parties to accelerate the development of emerging and future automotive content revenue streams.

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.

      It’s in every American’s blood to achieve more, do better, strive. (Well, most Americans. Everyone has that one cousin who doesn’t do a whole lot.)
      But in this hyper-aware, hyper-competitive world in which we live, I’d like everyone to do one, huge thing: less. Of everything.
      What? Yes, that’s right, less.
      You know that phrase you often hear when meeting new people and exchanging business cards, “I’m a jack of all trades, master of none?” That’s not a good thing. And I’m not sure why we hear it so much. I think it’s meant as a badge of honor. Or maybe it’s meant to be a sign of humility. But that person needs to listen to his or her own words and act on them.
      I don’t care how big your business is. Everyone is trying to do too much, be too much to too many other people and businesses.

      The signs are everywhere: Too few employees trying to do more and more complex tasks; companies offering myriad services, many of which seem impossible to accomplish them all well; half-completed projects; people chasing their tails, going after the shiny new ball of aluminum foil.
      What’s the result? Are your sales down? Do you feel like you’ve thrown everything you can at the wall and nothing is sticking? If so, I’m pretty sure it’s not the market: It’s you.
      Stop it. Stop trying to be everything, and watch your sales improve.
      Let’s get back to our customers and give them what they want and need. What’s the best way to do that? Listen to them. It isn’t any harder than that.
      The future is not in a web page, an app or an algorithm. Success is rooted in connecting with people, discovering their needs and providing them the products and services they need to do their business.
      It’s as simple as that.
